    try booting from your cd/dvd drive with the windows disk in the drive, instead of booting from the hard-drive. see what happens. you just gotta change the boot priority probably in your bios from "hardrice" to "cd/dvd drive" . some PC's, you can hit an F key during initial boot to change the settings.
  2. OH dont forget, if everything works, to change the BOOT sequence back to Hard-drive once your install is complete.
